Among the modern players who don't play traditionally he's among the least heinous. LOL
He's a great guitarist who's work is rooted squarely in traditional playing, only he extends the format. He's worked a lot with non flamenco musicians.
There's no such thing as nouveau flamenco, that's just a label, like easy listening jazz or smooth jazz...there's really no such things, there's just jazz and flamenco. There's Jerez style, and there's Chicago blues etc. It's about regional style originally, but today things have blended.
Patience at the bending iron pays in rounded dividends!
